Keats thought it the finest city in the world. Granted, it averages 172 rainy days a year, but it also breeds some of history's most notable people. JFK had 16 Oxford graduates in his administration, 24 of Britain's 49 prime ministers studied at the University and the list of distinguished graduates grows ever longer. Maybe it's all that time spent indoors, sheltered from the rain that leads to such genius. Maybe it's that studying, learning and growing is the purpose of the place. It's developing your grey matter that brings rejoicing in those moments of sunlight and understanding.
Read, learn, and live in the "city of dreaming spires." The Oxford Summer Programme allows you, as an affiliate member of Wycliffe Hall, University of Oxford, to do intensive scholarship in this historic seat of learning. Work with world-class academics to hone your skills and delve into the areas that interest you most. Broaden your thinking by living and learning in this major crossroads of the academic world.
The Oxford Summer Programme (OSP) is a programme of the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities and Wycliffe Hall, Oxford. Wycliffe Hall was established in Oxford in 1877 with a vision for training Christian leaders for the church and is a centre for both ministerial training and academic study. The programme is designed to enable students to gain a more comprehensive understanding of the Christian tradition in the British Isles and to do specialized work under Oxford academics. The Oxford Summer Programme may be taken for 6 credits and is appropriate for a variety of academic levels including graduate students and seminary students (see Academics).
OSP is now extended to a fifth week in order to allow students to participate in tutorials as part of the curriculum. Each student will have two tutorial meetings, the quintessential form of Oxford pedagogy, as part of each seminar.
